I have been working at Clemson University full-time (More than 3 years)
employee friendly, awesome environment, nice people, climate
rural area, summer is boring
I applied in-person. I interviewed at Clemson University (Clemson, SC).
I spend half a year to do research foe my second Master Thesis in Clemson with my future PhD advisor. He mad me do all the work from start to finish and would check up on me first daily, but then later only once or twice a week. After I finished all my work a couple pf weeks before I would leave, I got invited to dinner and we discussed my future. At the end he finally offered me to come back if I wanted to for my PhD.
